Penang as my hometown, neither did I know that, I actually made another great discovery that thanks to Lingzie that brought us here. I have always known that Kajang Satay which is very famous to folks in KL and Selangor but I just got to know that Ah Basri Satay is actually very famous with local crowd especially during lunch hours as its nearby the industrail zone.
In the afternoon you can expect this place to be full house even though its far away from town and nearby the industrail zone but nevertheless, its a great discovery.

Ah Basri

This shop actually is a combination of what the 1Malaysia concepts truely are. Behind this shop, there are actually a few partners which is Chinese, Malay and Indian owner that had come out with this concept which I am really proud of.

and yes, they are actually moving to a new premises which is bigger, new concept, air condition and brought the satay to another whole new level. You can expect more variety of satay choices and what is that, is for you to find out at their new branch as when the tauke told us about it, I was already hoping to try that new flavour.

Turning the satay under the warm charcoal that making sure it does not burn the meat and add on with their own special oil to bring up the taste and make the look of it, yummy, delicious and cant wait to salivate.

You can expect quite a huge range of satay compare to the normal hawker stall on the road or kopitiam. You can expect such meat as chicken, beef, lamb, deer, ostrich, horse, rabbit, duck, turkey, squid, prawn and fish. It also offers normal, black pepper and also tom yam flavoured satay.
and the price would be :Original Chicken RM1, Tomyam Chicken RM1.20, Black Pepper Chicken RM1.20, Original Beef RM1.40, Original Lamb RM1.40, Horse RM2.00, Squid RM2.50 PrawnRM3.00 Cow Stomach RM1.50.

The most important of all in satay is the gravy of it, filled with nice thick peanut sauce that rich with flavour and add on some of their chili to bring up the taste of the gravy is truly aromatic to dip along with the satay.

As the satay is very flavourful, and we requested to ask Sunny to be our very own embassador that he is enjoying every bite of his satay. My most prefered which is Lamb and Black Pepper Satay which had been marinated and bbq very perfectly, juicy and soft yet aromatic and besides that, do not look down on this place that the waiter and waitress here had been profesionally train and they have excelent customer service.
With them moving to their new location, I would not mind visit their new stall for the very next round and their satay stick is actually big in size.

It has been ages since last I came here, it was during my college here and used to hang out here for tea time as I was studying at Disted College during year 2001. Calculations come out around 8 years since last I visit this place. It was the ah pek Char koey Teow still the same person. Luckily was not closed. This place is what we called ‘Chiu Chang Ka‘, direct translation Under the Tree located at Pulau Tikus area.
This is the stall that stay at the same place for the past donkey years. One good thing about this stall is he uses charcoal to fried it is always better to those than using gas, fried by one plate at the time. The special about this uncle stall is he uses Duck egg, upon request. Must try it. Taste much better.
Tadaa, this is the uncle ‘Char Koey Teow with duck egg’. Have the wok taste, nicely fried and not too dry yet the si ham is alot, with chinese sausage and only RM3.50.
After leaving Penang for not too long, and I ordered Teh O Ice, and guess how much is it, Only RM0.90. Wow, didnt know still exist with this kind of pricing and the funny thing is when the lady come and told me its RM0.90, then I like ‘Hah, 90cents ah’. she like yeah la, you come out from hutan or too long never come out eat already iziit. Lol..It has been long long time since pay for a drink less than RM1.
This place also famous for Economy bee hoon with fried popiah on top, unfortunately it was closed that day, or I do not know still exist or not.
